Family Mobilizes Hundreds to Find Dog Stolen From Their Yard

2018-04-18 15:05
A family from Wrotham, Kent, received stunning news on Tuesday, April 17—eight days after their dog, Bear, disappeared from their garden. The male Pomeranian vanished on April 9, and the family said a security camera footage shows a van pulling up and somebody taking the dog. The family and friends conducted an extensive social media campaign to find Bear. A Facebook group dedicated to returning Bear to his home had over 1,300 members at time of writing. Then, on Tuesday, the family was informed that Bear was handed in to a veterinarian and identified. The moment he was reunited with the family was recorded by his owner Josephine Cordell. The video shows the family's children huddling around the dog and petting him with big smiles on their faces. "We can’t thank everyone enough for all the help you have given to get Bear home. Thank you so so so much," Cordell wrote. Credit: Josephine Cordell via Storyful
